German 7,9x57 "L 1 16 S67"

I dug this out, literally, from a huge pile at SLICS. People walked by me an hour later saying “Are you still here?” Looks like an un-common one. Just wanted to show, my back still hurts :face_with_monocle:

Manufactured by Lindener Zündhütchen-und Thonwarenfabrik in Hanover.

It appears that your persistence and sore back were worth the effort, as Chubbuck states that “Specimens from this manufacturer will seldom be encountered by the collector.”

Well done - nice find.
